Recently it seems like the days , weeks and months are just flying by, how on earth can it nearly be November already! Each day merges into the next without any great distinction and each morning sees me wake up exhausted and just about ready to face the day ahead.
I work fulltime and it seems that most of my time and energy is taken up in work. I am lucky in that I love my job and although at times I have horrible stressful days, I never dread going in and enjoy time out of the house.
I really need to get into exercising, I talk about it all the time and bought running gear, before hurting myself and giving it up. A few weeks ago I bought a crosstrainer and was determined to use it. I did use it three times before giving it up. I promised myself I would get back to it and I will but when I’m not sure!
I know if I start to do some exercise my energy levels would increase but its a bit of a vicious circle as I have no energy to motivate myself to doing it.
I also made the connection a few days ago with my tiredness and the fact that I am on pirition constantly which would add to the feeling of exhaustion. I know if I don’t start something soon then with the dark nights coming in I will just start feeling worse- I don’t know if I had SAD but know my mood dips a lot in the winter.
Maybe I need to look into SAD lamps etc and see what the feedback is on them, I also promise I will stop sitting around on twitter and facebook and of course catching up on the numerous blogs I read and make time to exercise and do something to take time out.
Tonight though I plan to have a glass of wine and lemonade and lots of crisps before I start my new regime. MrR is working so it will be a quiet evening for me.
What do you do to motivate and energise yourself?
